Crystal Palace Park, London Reviews - Write a Review
A good place for walk and day out. The park is located right next the train station and parking isn't bad. It has dinosaur park for kids to drop their jaws. There's a small play area and having a dedicated sand play area is a huge plus. My son loved the sand. I'd have increased it to 5*s had the toilets been any good/clean. Another downside is dogs waste at places isn't cleaned on the lawn.
The park is beautiful and has so much potential There's a nice little kids farm, famous dinosaurs and a playground as well as lots of walks around the lakes, up to the maze. There's also a huge sports centre with great pool and lots of other events. Easy to find free parking and the cafe in Crystal palace station is decent (though doesn't do hot food after 2pm I think). Unfortunately the park needs some upkeep - toilets are awful, main cafe is being rebuilt but wasn't great anyway and playground is poor for a park of this size (and equipment is broken for long periods). I think there's a big regeneration program coming next year with new cafe and skate park and hopefully other issues will be addressed!
This has history, a farm, playground, cafe and plenty of room to run around. If the toilets were slightly better it would be 5 out of five. I recommend looking at the dinosaurs they are amazing
Nice open space to wander around on a sunny day. Not recommended for anyone with a weak bladder as the toilet facilities are few and far between. There is also a dearth of seating for the less sprightly. The vaunted dinosaur area is old and uninspiring and there is very little to interest 5 to 10 year olds. But if it's a picnic with a young family or a tarmacadam path to jog on this is the place to be.
I like the park and go here frequently. I used to also walk my dogs here but I have found more and more recently that people have their dogs off the leash. And whilst I have a dog I am not fond of other pets rushing across to my own. Especially when an owner is not close. As my own dog has now been attacked three times in the park by unleashed dogs. They have refurbished the dinosaurs and the farm attached is also excellent for small children. The park I can not fault as it is beautiful. The only thing letting it down is those who think it's okay for their dogs to run around unchecked.
